 “Art reminds us that the world is an expansive place with lots of joy in it,” says Edmonds mixed media artist Meredith Arnold.

And there’s no doubt that the world could use a little joy right about now. Fortunately, the annual Edmonds Art Studio Tour is coming soon, with joy and whimsy and grandeur in tow!

Artists in and around Edmonds are busily preparing to open their studio doors for the 13th annual Edmonds Art Studio Tour, to be held Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 15-16, 2018. 

This free, annual, self-guided event, sponsored in part by the Edmonds Arts Festival, provides an exclusive glimpse into 15 private art studios showcasing the work of 30 local artists. The Tour, which Arnold describes as a “mini art safari,” offers patrons an opportunity to meet professional artists, see how they create their work, and purchase pieces directly from the makers. Studios will be open from 10am to 5pm both days.

“You can’t help but come away from each studio with a little more inspiration and wonder as you discover techniques and pieces you’ve never seen before,” said jewelry maker Ellen Chappelle. “By the end of the day, you’re just bursting with creative energy and joy.”

Landscape painter Andy Eccleshall agreed. “It’s a unique opportunity to see how it’s made, in the place where we make it,” he said. “When else do you get the chance?”

The Edmonds Art Studio Tour is generously supported by the Edmonds Arts Festival, the Edmonds Arts Festival Foundation, the Edmonds Arts Commission, Joyful Art Fund, Lexus of Seattle, and many other valued partners who are listed on the Tour website.
